Ahhhhhhh.....here's the damn diary entry page....

Welp, here's where I'll try out a random rant for a while. A place to dump stuff too inconsequential to actually put in an email to people. I remember BITD when the HS English teacher _made_ us write private diary entries every single day. She'd glance at the entries once a week to make sure the content was flowing. Now that was a helluva lot more revealing than discretionary posting to a public mailing list.

Maybe someday I'll do a private diary where I encrypt the entry each day and toss the daily key out, and post it somewhere. The key length is set to be somthing that technology 100 years from now can crack in 1 day. In the hopes I'll never be around when the entries are cracked, and therefore I'm enticed to make truly private entries. Once a year, I upgrade the key length for my daily key. Nah, those qubit machines will be around soon enough. What the hell do I need to pour my heart out for anyway?

BTW, I am here in the 'observer' category. I have no aspiration to achieve some kind of standing here. If you endorse me, I'll assume you're saying 'yeah, I know that guy. He makes hardware gadgets that run linux.' And there's not much more to it than that.

Nice an hot today in sunny Silicon Valley.
